Quote:Hi Folks, Just to give you a friendly advise on buying Armani Collezioni suits on Ebay. Simply to put .. Do not buy them. Â I bought one from the seller (from germany), and the suit that I recieved was fake. Â In fact, most all Armani Collezioni suits on Ebay that are being sold by German sellers are fake articles IMHO (pic tells it all.). Â How do I know this? Â Well... read the following: 1. Â Stiching: Â design house like Armani, Zegna, Canali, even Hugo Boss suits have all fine stiching. Â The suit i got on ebay had such a poor stichings. Â The stiching of the inside jacket where the jacket's outter fabric and lineing meets, should be hidden, so that the seam should create seamless connection between the fabric and the lineing. Â My made to measure Armani Collezioni suits from boutique shop and Hugo Boss suits are all like this. Â But the suit i got from ebay had VISIBLE stitching which looks not only cheap, but also looks unskilled finish. Inside Armani pants, on the very top of the pants, there is stiching holding inner supportive fabric and outer fabric that goes around the pants (the waist..). Â The stiching of that seam should be straight .. not zig-zag or any other.. Â Armani does not stich like that in that area. Â I have confirmed this with my Armani Assoc. The zipper. Â All rather new Armani Collezioni Dress pants (inc. suit pants) should say "A2" on the zipper. Â The suit that I recieved from ebay seller had something else on it.. There are many other flows I can point out.. but these are the eaist ones to detect. Â I know its tempting to buy luxery pieces on the ebay .. but .. when things are this cheap .. you have to wonder .. My seller has 100% + feedback .. But when you read his feedbacks .. people give him + feedback as long as they recieved product in time or suits does not have NOTICEBLE MAJOR FLOWS. Â I think most of people who have bought these suits never have bought real Armani Collezioni suits from the boutique. Â Otherwise .. they would returned the item like me and ask for refuned..lost $100 on shipping Armani Collezioni suits create the drape and soft curves that no other designer house can .. But the suit I got fitted like paper bag.
